## Lattice Pathes as Interfacial phase boundaries: some history and a
new solution

### Fri., Oct. 23, 2009, 3:00pm, MATX 1100

We review the idea of using lattice paths as models of phase

boundaries rather than as models of polymers. We also present the

solution of a particular model that has demonstrated some novel

mathematical features. Additionally this model may describe the steady

state of a non-equilibrium model of molecular motors.
